Elon Musk has vowed to create his own smartphone if Apple and Google ban Twitter from their app stores.
Musk announced his plan in a tweet on Friday.
Podcaster and former OAN host Liz Wheeler had tweeted, “if Apple & Google boot Twitter from their app stores, @elonmusk should produce his own smartphone. Half the country would happily ditch the biased, snooping iPhone & Android. The man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?”
Musk responded that he would if that is what it came down to.
I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone

“I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone,” Musk replied.
Wheeler followed up with a Twitter poll asking, “would you switch to a tELONphone? Vote yes or no with your best pun for a name below.”

With over 46,000 votes, 56.3 percent of respondents said yes.
The left has been attempting to bully advertisers into abandoning the platform over Musk’s promises to reinstate all previously banned accounts, including President Donald Trump.
Of course, they are also attempting to get the app booted from app stores, in the same way that Gab and Parler have been.
The Gateway Pundit will be back on Twitter once the account is reinstated.
